KENTUCKY

Amy McGrath (D-KY-Senate)

“My three post-911 combat tours taught me that not only do we need a strong military, but we must invest in a strong diplomatic corps and in international development. It is the cheapest insurance policy we can buy as a country. I agree with former Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, when he says that if we don’t help our allies, then we’ll only wind up needing to “buy more ammunition.” This means fully funding the U.S. State Department, USAID, and developing a robust platform of international development and assistance.”

He sensibly supported the Iran nuclear accord and has been working to prevent a war since the Trump administration’s withdrawal and implementation of a maximum pressure campaign.

MONTANA

Steve Bullock (D-MT-Senate)

“The greatest mistake of American foreign policy since the end of WWII has been the Iraq War. This conflict was started based on the naïve belief that the U.S. could overthrow a regime in the Middle East and democracy would naturally ensue. Rather than a stable democratic regime in Iraq, this war produced a massive amount of instability in an already volatile region. We’ve been entangled in the region for too long, and it’s time to reassess our posture. I want our brave servicemembers to come home as soon as possible.”

NORTH CAROLINA

Cal Cunningham (D-NC-Senate)

“‘Going it alone’ must always be a last resort, in defense of our most vital national interests. Rather, in pursuing our national security objectives we should use all of the instruments of national power: diplomatic, economic, information and military; and we must recognize that the use of force can detract from security, as easily as it can contribute to our security. There is nothing more important than ensuring the safety of our nation and I believe that starts with smart diplomacy, not bluster and aggression. We should be working with our global allies to advocate for human rights and combat climate change.”

TEXAS

MJ Hegar (D-TX-Senate)

“I will support responsible national security policies that recognize the value of seeking diplomatic solutions and employing strategic use of humanitarian assistance and trade negotiations, while insisting we reserve the deployment of American troops as a last resort. I believe a healthy State Department is our military’s first line of defense, and our relationships with our allies are fragile and critical to maintain.”

We need a strong Congress that will protect diplomats, trust experts, and push back against a president who believes he can do whatever he pleases.”

Sarah Hammond (D-PA-11)

“[F]or decades, we have failed to secure peace in the Middle East or Northern Africa. At the same time, the Pentagon accounts for at least half of our national budget, while we wonder how we can afford basic healthcare, even amidst a global pandemic. To end terrorism, we must invest in infrastructure, diplomacy, and humanitarian aid in countries that have endured generations of war. To end poverty and inequality in this country, we must move money away from bombs and into healthcare, job security, and the sense of security that can only be achieved in a nation not constantly at war.”
